Today is the first day of December and that can only mean one thing: Christmas Gifts. Now I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love making things for people during the holidays. To me, there is just something extra special about it! But, like everyone else in the world, the Christmas season is a busy one and that sometimes leaves me scrambling for ideas or short on time (and that stresses me out TREMENDOUSLY).
This year, I am going to do us both a favor and publish some of my favorite, insanely simple, yet still-so-wonderful gift ideas that you can use for anyone in your life. Ready?? Here goes.
Bath bombs are in tons of boutique stores, and in case you haven’t priced them, they are kinda spendy (as my friends in WA State say). But, you can make your own with just a few ingredients! Check out my super simple recipe here!
Lavender Oatmeal Bath Soak
Do you want to know what goes perfect with a chilly winter day? A nice long bath with some fantastic smelling bath soak! The thing that I really love about this recipe is that it also contains oatmeal so it is not only relaxing but it is moisturizing, too! See what you need to make this fantastic gift here!
Eye Make Up Remover Pads
One thing I really like to do is glam it up for holiday parties. I generally wear much more make up for holiday shindigs because let’s face it, with two young kids, I don’t get out much. These Make-Up Remover pads are such a great gift for someone like me! (They also are a great gift to give yourself too, so you may want to make extra!) Get the rest of the details here!
Fancy soaps are super fun to have around at the holidays. They make a great gift for moms and grandmas especially and are so fun to make! Get my fancy soap recipe here!
This luxurious bubble bath pairs great with the bath bombs and bath soak! You could choose to gift all three and make a set, or you can give them individually. The trio would make an especially great gift for teachers or stressed out mom friends! Get my super simple recipe right here!
Scented Diffuser Ornaments
When I am making DIY items, I really like to involve my kids. I am in love with these diffuser ornaments, which are not only functional, but they are great for the kids to help with too! (Just think of all of that extra love going into this gift!) Plus, the ornaments will be a treasured keepsake year after year. It doesn’t get any better than that, folks. Grandmas eat. this. stuff. up. See how to impress Grandma here.
Recipes for Carry-Ins/Things to Bring to the Party
Now that we have some great personal gifts covered, it is time to tackle those carry-ins! Here are 3 wonderful recipes that will have your colleagues, family members, ladies at church, neighbors, and anyone else you share them with wondering how you pull off being so awesome at life (especially at the holidays)! Check out my Spiced Apple Cider, Herb Cheeseball, and Peppermint Brownie Recipes here!
But wait, there’s more!
Before we wrap up, I wanted to share 2 of my absolute favorite oily things for the holidays:
First, here are some of the diffuser combinations that I am enjoying in my home this holiday season. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Next, I wanted to share one final gift idea, which I have saved for last because it is the absolute BEST gift around.
The Premium Starter Kit is the most versatile gift that you can give. Not only can it be used for many of the recipes in my Merry and Bright Holiday Gifts Series, but you can enjoy the benefits of a wholesale membership all year round.
The Premium Starter kit includes a diffuser and 11 of our most popular (and useful!) oils. (You can learn complete details on what’s included in the kit here)! Plus, this month is extra special because new members will also get an FREE 5 ml bottle of Christmas Spirit as a bonus oil! That’s a total of 12 oils, folks! This is such an incredible deal and I hope you take advantage of it!
I hope you have enjoyed my Merry and Bright Holiday Gifts and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas (and Happy Gifting, too!)
